There are hundreds/if not thousands of species and named cultivars of hardy Geraniums.
Even with a pic to show the leaf shape and flowers, id would be difficult to be 100% accurate.
Just wondering if it might be Aconitum sp?
Wait for flowers which will prove if Geranium ... or not
It is a Ruellia sp.
Maybe Ruellia simplex?
Lovely geranium... but it will take over your whole garden!
Should be sold with A HEALTH WARNING!
Yes... it is an Arum.
Probably Arum maculatum.
Can be an invasive thug.
Dwarfish, well behaved... wonderful scent.
Oh dear...Sounds like Viburnum beetle. See...
Yes! Can seed around.
Lunaria annua... common name Honesty. See..
Is the stem round, cylindrical rather than flat ...as in a blade of grass?
It looks like a rush... possibly Juncus effusus.
These links will help.
Look at the colour of the pollen...Quote...
The easiest way to tell the difference between native and non-native bluebells is to look at the colour of the pollen.
If it is creamy-white then the bluebell is a native. If it is any other colour, such as pale green or blue, then it is definitely not native.
When the pollen is shed, the empty anther can be a pale cream colour, so make sure you look at the most recently opened flowers at the top of the spike, to find the true colour of the pollen."
There are 3 "bluebells" now in cultivation.
1. Hyacinthoides non scripta. The true English wild bluebell.
2. Hyacinthoides hispanica. The Spanish bluebell....
3. Hyacinthoides x massartiana. This is a hybrid between the 2 others.
